There are two versions of the TCM Commitment Survey - original and revised.

Each is designed
to measure three forms of employee commitment to an organization:
1. desire-based (affective commitment)
2. obligation-based (normative commitment)
3. cost-based (continuance commitment).
Employees respond to a series of statements pertaining to their relationship with the
organization and their reason for staying.
In the original version of the survey, there are eight statements for each of three commitment
scales: the Affective Commitment Scale (ACS), the Normative Commitment Scale (NCS) and
the Continuance Commitment Scale (CCS).
In the revised version there are six statements for each form of commitment. The survey can be
administered alone, or can be imbedded in more extensive paper & pencil or web-based
organizational surveys.
Instructions for using, scoring and interpreting the survey results are provided. Sources for
obtaining more information about the commitment scales, as well as for the management of
employee commitment, are also provided.
Potential Applications:
Corporations and HR Consulting Companies

TCM: An Effective Measure of Employee Commitment


How committed are your employees? In measuring employee commitment to an
organization, it is important to analyze three significant elements that can gain
insight into commitment, including desire, obligation and cost. TCM has integrated
these important dimensions of employee commitment to produce high-quality and
effective employee surveys resulting in enhanced workplace satisfaction.
Employees respond to a series of statements pertaining to their relationship with
the organization, and their reasons for staying. Tailored to both academic
institutions and commercial industries, TCM has created two packages in an easily
accessible and affordable collection. Aimed at battling unwanted turnovers and
uncommitted employees, this extensive online survey is an ideal method of
restoring employee dedication.
With an enhancement from the original survey which consisted of eight statements
for each of three commitment scales, TCM has created a revised version of six
statements for each form of commitment. Previous measures of Affective
Commitment Scale (ACS), the Normative Commitment Scale (NCS) and the
Continuance Commitment Scale (CCS) have now been expanded into six critical
forms of commitment to create an optimal evaluation of employee commitment.
For those of you interested in the Academic Package, you will be provided with a
survey, instructions for scoring, interpreting the survey results as well as additional
sources for more information about the commitment scales and employee
commitment. All of the information is provided for you to ensure you will be
knowledgeable about all of the information pertaining to the survey, and the critical

results that emerge. Best of all, the academic package is free of charge for both
academic researchers and students.
For those in the commercial industry, TCM has created an exclusive Commercial
Package that can be administered alone, or can be embedded in more extensive
paper and pencil or web- based organizational surveys. All of the information
provided to those using the academic package is present for the commercial
packages and questionnaires are also provided with instructions regarding various
results analysis options. Depending on the number of subjects you wish to include,
licenses will vary in cost.
Every organization can benefit from enhanced employee commitment, and TCM
makes it easy for employers to gain insight into employee feedback on their
dedication to the company.
